At the end of 2017, Zeds Dead and Jauz teamed up for the single, “Lights Go Down,” a drum and bass belter that may have helped launch the genre’s 2018 resurgence in the United States. Now, the producers have enlisted nine heavy hitters in the bass music scene, each giving a unique take on the intense track.

The Deadbeats duo reach to their own label for a few of the remixes, looking to LICK and Duke & Jones for two bass-heavy renditions of the track. Gentlemen’s Club and Subtronics each drop off solid dubstep remixes, while Sikdope and Sqwad turn the song into high-energy bass house thrillers. With nine solid remixes viable for almost any set, don’t be surprised to hear “Lights Go Down” in one form or another for the rest of the year.

Boogie T releases ‘2KFO’ remix album, announces BOOGIE T.RIO debut at Electric Forest

When Boogie T, real name Brock Thorton, received his first guitar at the ripe age of eight, little did the dubstep producer know that the gift from his grandparents would lead to a musical career that would include appearances at as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Coachella, and EDC Vegas, to name a few. It wasn’t until Thorton heard the bass-heavy “Magical World” from Bassnectar and Nelly Furtado that the NOLA-based musician began experimenting with dubstep, a style that was relatively obscure in the Southern region at that time.

Raised at the nexus of Cajun and Creole cultures in Lafayette, Louisiana, Thorton’s formal training in jazz, folk, and Bayou gospel would fuel his entry into the world of electronic music. The result, as any bass music aficionado knows, is a unique discography of bass-infused compositions with groovy guitar riffs and jazz/hip-hop-inspired improvisation.

Boogie T has since risen to prominence touring North America as a solo DJ, with numerous releases on well-known EDM record labels and high-powered collaborations with the liked of GRiZ, Snails, and Ganja White Night. Throughout his live sets and studio recorded singles, there have been subtle (and not so subtle) hints of what was yet to come: vocals, guitars, keyboards, and real drums. Thorton’s goal was always to one day tour with live musicians.

Enter: BOOGIE T.RIO, the next phase in the evolution Boogie T’s musical trajectory. The live band experience consists of Boogie T on vocals/guitar/keys, with longtime friend Frank “Animal Drums” Castro on drums, and notable New Orleans musician-about-town Andriu Yanovski on keyboards/synth bass. The trio will be making their live debut at Electric Forest Weekend Two with some very special guests.

“I have this thing about when I go on stage, it’s like once you’re up there everything disappears. The audience, the production, any nerves, it all fades and the music takes over. I can’t imagine that feeling sharing the stage this year, it is going to be magical. I am so grateful to my fans and Electric Forest for this opportunity,” said Boogie T.

To celebrate one such momentous occasion, Boogie T has released a very special remix pack of his single, “2KFO,” out now on his own imprint, Drama Club Recordings, which launched in late April. Thorton told DA,

“Drama Club, the label name is a play on words. There’s so much drama in the music industry that sometimes I want to poke at the irony of it all… kind of like ‘2KFO.’ But really I’m excited to teach people about different kinds of music and introduce them to things they probably didn’t even know they’d love. The music will do the talking.”

With heavy-hitting bass music contributors like Dirty Monkey, Subtronics, um.., and Symbiotic, to up-and-coming free form bass producers Madhatter!, Mantis, and local NOLA favorites sfam, the entire “2KFO” remix album stands on it’s own as a “Who’s Who” in underground bass music.
